Portland Death Certificates

This is an index to the Portland Death Certificates 1881-1917, on microfilm at the GFO library. There are a small number of birth records included on the film; also removal and transportation documents which accompany the certificates. A number in brackets to the left of the roll# indicates multiple documents. The dates covered are primarily from 1889-1902, but there are earlier and later ones. As with all death records, the quality of information given depends on who provided the details.
